The Republican primary race for Florida’s 13th Congressional District is scheduled to take place on Aug. 18, and candidate Anna Paulina Luna is hoping she is elected to take down Democrat Charlie Crist in November’s general election.
“I’m sure as hell not a politician,” she said, in a campaign video showing her firing guns. “I won’t ever stand here and lie to you.”
Luna is a Conservative Inc. operative hoping to make the jump to U.S. Congress. She has worked as Turning Point USA’s Director of Hispanic Engagement in the past. Big League Politics has reported on TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk’s support for mass immigration and stapling green cards to diplomas for foreigners.
Luna’s principles do not seem to be far from Kirk’s. Luna often parades around her Latina heritage to capitalize on her minority privilege, but her ethnic makeup has perhaps led her to support of amnesty for illegals.
“First and foremost, there is DACA recipients who absolutely we need to have a solution for them,” Luna explained to Eric Bolling in a clip from 2019. “Because these people were allowed by Republicans and Democrats to stay, and we need to provide a solution for them. They are not responsible for the sins of their parents.”
After Big League Politics and other outlets reported on Luna’s support for amnesty earlier this year, she went on the offensive, claiming without providing any evidence that the media reporting on her history of supporting amnesty were paid off operatives working for her opponents.
“Dirty political operatives working with one of my opponents is trying to spread fake news about me and challenge me on my immigration views,” Luna said in a social media video, claiming in the video that she supports ending DACA.
“I’m of Mexican descent, I’m descended of legal immigrants, and I’ve been down to the border three times. That is something my opponents can’t say. My views are crystal clear. I stand with President Trump on immigration, period,” she added.
Luna is playing sleight-of-hand with her campaign rhetoric. Although she claims she wants DACA to be ended, her proposed ending of DACA involves giving amnesty to illegal aliens who have flouted immigration law for years.
“We do need to provide some way, some resolution, for these people that really never had a choice in the matter of coming her in the first place,” Luna reiterated in another social media video.

Immigration hawks are not impressed with Luna’s political double speak on the campaign trail. The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has admonished Luna as a RINO because of her consistent support for amnesty.
“While Anna Paulina Luna does oppose Obama’s unconstitutional and illegal DACA Amnesty, she supports giving green card or citizenship Amnesty to illegal aliens,” ALIPAC wrote in their press release.
“Most Americans oppose any pathway to citizenship and voting rights for illegal aliens who will vote 90% Democrat in future elections handing full control of the all three branches of the US Government to the left forevermore,” they added.
ALIPAC has endorsed Luna’s competitor, George Buck, a military veteran who stands firmly against illegal immigration and amnesty for aliens. Buck has raised more money than Luna, but establishment-backed contender Amanda Makki leads the GOP field in overall fundraising. Other candidates in the primary race include Sheila Griffin and Sharon Barry Newby.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffed From Democratic Convention, While RINO John Kasich Will Speak
Kasich’s more of a Democrat than AOC.
Reports for plans for the Democratic National Convention indicate that progressive New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not be giving a speech for the program of events, while former Ohio Governor John Kasich- a nominal Republican- will be speaking in a primetime slot in support of Joe Biden for President.
The prioritization of Kasich over Ocasio-Cortez shows Biden’s interest in appealing to suburban affluent Republican voters, even if it comes at a detriment to turning out the Democratic base of urban millennials. The strategy could backfire significantly, especially if Ocasio-Cortez herself chooses to respond in kind and only provide lukewarm support for Biden.
Initial reports suggested that AOC would be given a primetime speaking role, only for sources close to the Bronx Democrat to correct such an assertion. It appears that AOC will instead speak in a limited capacity, in a function reflecting her role as a leader of Biden’s climate working task force.
Joe Biden may be the only individual to speak personally from the convention hall in which the event is principally located, on account of coronavirus social distancing measures. Biden campaign operatives are reportedly making “ruthless cuts” to accommodate for the digital nature of the event, forcing out many Democrats who would otherwise speak at the convention in person.
Kasich will speak on the same night as Vermont Independent socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, in a gesture that’s intended to highlight the range of Biden’s base of support.
